Honda CR-V

When the word “Honda” comes to mind what is the first word you think of? Reliability? Safety? Longevity? Affordability? Strong resale value? The new Honda CR-V is all of the above. It raises the bar in the compact SUV category. Why not buy a vehicle that has stacked up multiple awards?!


Reliability is the quality of being trustworthy or of performing consistently well. Since 1995 the Honda CR-V’s have been on the road. We have service customers bring in their CR-V for servicing all the time ranging from late 90’s models to brand new 2018 models. The fact that the CR-V has been around for almost 25 years is pretty impressive, and also proving why Honda’s are so reliable. If you plan on keeping your vehicle for a very long time a Honda product is the way to go.


Safety is one of the most important features consumers look for when purchasing a new vehicle. The CR-V has been and always will be one of the safest compact SUV’s on the road. New Honda Sensing is an exclusive intelligent suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies designed to alert you to things you might miss while driving. (EX and above trims.) It includes Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) that adjusts steering to help you keep centered in a detected lane. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) that maintains a set following interval behind detected vehicles. Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM) that adjusts steering and braking if you cross detected lanes without signaling. Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) that applies brake pressure when an unavoidable collision is determined. Lane Departure Warning (LDW) that can detect unindicated lane departures from detected lanes and alerts will flash and sound to help bring your attention to correcting the lane drift. And Forward Collision Warning (FCW) that uses a camera on the windshield to detect vehicles in front of you, activating audio and visual alerts to warn you if you are at risk of a collision. Along with Advanced Airbag Technology, ACE body structure, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with Traction Control, and a rearview camera standard on every Honda model, you will be confident in knowing a Honda will keep you and your family safe.


As a consumer, it is not too much to ask that a vehicle not only be reliable and safe but also be affordable too! The entry level CR-V LX AWD trim starts at $25,650*. The luxurious Touring AWD trim is only $34,150*. Get your cake and eat it too? I think so!

Best Resale Value

Resale value is another very important aspect of the car buying experience. Resale value is how much your car will be worth when you sell or trade it in down the road. Lucky for Honda owners, Honda’s hold their value better than competition. One reason is because Honda does not put their product into fleets, especially daily rental fleets. Fleet use can lower the long-term value of a brand’s products. In 2017 KBB.com named Honda “Best Value Brand.” And already for 2018 Honda has won numerous KBB.com Best Resale Value Awards including, midsize car, minivan, subcompact car, subcompact SUV/crossover, and top 10!

Honda has been producing automobiles in American for more than 35 years and currently operates 19 major manufacturing facilities in North America. And in 2017, 93% of all Honda vehicles sold in the U.S. were made in North America using domestic and globally sourced parts. We’ve given you all the reasons to buy a new Honda CR-V. Come take one for a test drive today! Your wallet will thank you later!
